Sorry for this- i remember a thread about this but no longer remember the answer. Where is the best pizza and/or italian food around here?
Strawberry's is very, very good. Get the bacon-cheddar or Mexican pie.Many say that Strawberrys in Woodbridge has the best pizza. I would agree with them.
Believe they still have a deal of two slices and a domestic draft beer for $ 5. Tell them you want your slices from a fresh pie when it first comes out of the oven. That is the way to go.
Pizza Time? Nobody goes there anymore. It's too crowded.(an ongoing tribute to Yogi)Have been to almost every pizza place listed above and yes many are very good ...Strawberries...Nancy's...Sciortinos ...but none better than Pizza Time in Avenel ( Woodbridge)...this place is mobbed on most days especially from Thursday -Sunday...the answer is in their sauce and crust... originally from Brooklyn NY.... Pizza Time has been a Woodbridge staple for over 35 years...
First of all, if a pizza bit me, it would be a pretty good sign that the meat toppings were a bit under-cooked. Which would pretty much rule it out as good pie. Second, I've never Papa John's pizza nor have I ever had a Frito (yuk).Maybe put Fritos on the pie like Papa John's. You wouldn't know good pie if it bit you.
I like both of these posters, but personal attacks in a pizza thread ? Color me impressed !First of all, if a pizza bit me, it would be a pretty good sign that the meat toppings were a bit under-cooked. Which would pretty much rule it out as good pie. Second, I've never Papa John's pizza nor have I ever had a Frito (yuk).
Lastly, I've had pizza at almost all of the places mentioned in this thread and then some. And, although I once had a narrow-minded view of pizza like you, I was eventually persuaded to try Strawberry's bacon-cheddar pizza. And I'm telling you, it is either the best or second best pizza I've ever had. It's not what I expected and if you haven't had it, it won't be what you expect either.
I think maybe the best was the sausage and garlic from the original Sciortino's location in Perth Amboy, before it was eminent-domained. But it has been awhile and although they're using the same recipe, the Sciortino's pizza at Harbor Lights in South Amboy is just not quite as good.
Which reminds me I need to go try the new location in Perth Amboy.
Yes strawberries. Very good and they still have the 2 slices and a beer for $5. But I still rather get a fresh pie custom made. Take out places: Pizza time in avenel. Rocco's in avenel. Eric legrand likes rocco's and references that in his book.
If you want to go south over the bridge sciorintinos in south amboy is very good, they seem to be better when they are less crowded . Sciorintinos has a a Perth amboy location that's a more of a takeout place. Go a little east over the other bridge and there is Staten Island. Lots of good pizza places there.
One town over is Nancy's in Rahway is very good. Thin crust.
You want a chain? Anthonys at Menlo is good for a chain. Good beer selection.
